Granite Bay is one of the five beautiful bays located in Noosa Point, a popular surfing area in the Sunshine Coast.
It is the least crowded of the bays, which make it the perfect surfing beach.

Avid surfers may try their hand surfing at all of these areas though; they start out at the eastern area of the bay, then again on Tea Tree Bay, followed by Boiling Pot point, by the boulder shore across the car park, then at Johnson Point.
Even if you don’t surf, a visit to Noosa Point is worth it. This spectacular bay is great for sunbathing and just relaxing on the beach if you want to catch some rays. There is also a lookout point here from where you can see the sparkling turquoise waters, as far as Double Island Point when it’s a clear day.
While here, it’s best to explore the rest of the Noosa National Park. This is where you’ll encounter the unforgettable coast of the Noosa Headland plus numerous attractions in Lake Weyba, Coolum, and Peregian. The wildlife sanctuary within the park is a haven for nature lovers; see the beautiful eucalypt forest, melaleuca wetland, woodland, wallum heathland, and dense rainforests.
Kayaking is one of the best ways to explore Granite Bay and the other bays in the Noosa National Park. Go on a guided tour to learn about the headland’s formation millions of years ago. It will also educate you on the rich history of Noosa, and you might even encounter turtles and dolphins while you’re at it.
Granite Bay and the rest of the Noosa National Park are a must-visit while in the Sunshine Coast. Heaven for surfers and travellers alike, you’ll find there’s much to love in this area.
